We didn't wanna wait, for our liiiiiives to be over to see the "Dawson's Creek" cast together again. Thankfully, Entertainment Weekly gathered the main cast members for a special magazine spread in honor of the 1998-2003 show's 20th anniversary.
(The official 20th anniversary was in January, and you may recall that James Van Der Beek honored the milestone on social media.)
Katie Holmes (Joey Potter), James Van Der Beek (Dawson Leery), Joshua Jackson (Pacey Witter), Michelle Williams (Jen Lindley), Busy Phillips (Audrey Liddell), Kerr Smith (Jack McPhee), Meredith Monroe (Andie McPhee), and Mary Beth Peil (Evelyn "Grams" Ryan) talked to EW for the cover story and reunion video.

Of course, since reboots and revivals are all the rage these days, EW had to ask if the stars -- at least those whose characters are still alive, sorry Jen -- would be willing to return for more. Sounds like they're not really into the idea:
Katie Holmes: "What I love about this show is that it existed at a time pre-social media, pre-internet, and it was nostalgic when we were shooting it. So I really like it where it is, to be honest."
Show creator Kevin Williamson: "Dawson's Creek was me expressing myself at that point in time. And here I am, at another age, at another point in time. I don't know what I could emotionally bring to the table. I can't wait for someone else to do it. I don't think it's going to be me. But I'll be happy to watch it."
Fair enough. Do you think someone else should spearhead a "Dawson's Creek" reboot, or leave it alone?
